Share Your Love Story #8

February 15, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The other day we launched what’s turning into a really fun and heart-warming project. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we asked people to send us their love story. We’ve been getting some really lovely stories and we’re sharing some of them with you here.

Then, on Valentine’s Day we’re going to do a random drawing of all of the submissions and the winner will get our special Sweetheart Package – dinner for two at their favorite restaurant (we’ll buy a $100 gift card for them) and a $50 gift card to shop at R. Stuart & Co. (online or in our Wine Bar). Wouldn’t this be the ideal time for some Love, Oregon wine? Perfect for the occasion.

Kitri & Travis

Travis and I met on a blind date in 2006.  My cousin Amy had met Travis in college, where they were set up on a blind date by their dads, who knew each other from work.  Amy’s encouragement started this way: “You should meet Travis!  It didn’t work out with us, but it might with you!”  With that statement, I knew I was doomed to be “the cousin that gets fixed up with our ex-boyfriends.”  GREAT.

But, despite my reluctance, I did meet Travis on a blind date.  We went to NW Portland and met at the now defunct bar, The Green Room.  We saw a comedy show.  We went back to The Green Room.  We hit it off so well, that I invited him to come to a BBQ at my house the next day.

While at the BBQ, one of my roommate’s hippie friends made a point to come and talk us.  “Your auras together are amazing,” he said.  “How long have you been together?  It’s like you’re just meant to be moving through life together.”  And we were.  And we are.  We haven’t looked back since.
